Question for food delivery people, and the people that tip them.

It seems a lot of places that used to have "free delivery" are now charging a "delivery fee" when you place delivery orders. I ordered Papa Johns last week and they tacked on an extra $2. That's on top of all the food taxes and the "pizza tax" that we have here. I typically tip about $3, so a $10 pizza ends up costing me about $17 these days.

My question to the delivery guys is this: Do you actually see any of that $2? Does it come directly to you and become part of your "tip"?

I reallize that it goes towards covering your gas and vehicle maintenance but do you have any "left over?"

Pizza Hut charges $2.50 for delivery, and we drivers get $1.05 of that. It's highway robbery; please call corporate Pizza Hut and complain about it. Problem is, customers see that $2.50 on their ticket and they do think I get all of it, so they tip less.

The really messed-up part is back in 1999-2000, when I worked P-Hut as a cook in high school. Back then, when gas was still a buck, the delivery charge was $.85, and the drivers got $.50 per run.

Can anybody rationalize why, when fuel cost has more than tripled, Pizza Hut takes more from the drivers' pockets?

Sounds like one more reason to just not order from Pizza Hut anymore.

And to the OP Pizza Tax?

I've never heard of this pizza tax, and I've ordered many a pizza (though never got it delivered)

There was a heated debate about tipping pizza delivery drivers a few months ago on here.
Most places around here have "walk-in" specials which are much cheaper than delivery prices. You're already paying a premium before they even add the delivery charge.

i will gladly pay an extra 2.50 to not have to put on pants. sorry you don't see that money, but you really should consider seeing me naked a part of your tip.

No need to put on pants, here. Our Little Caesar's has a drive up window. 5 bucks and they hand you a pizza out.

Hey, Jesus only asks for 10%!! What is all of this 15% and 20% that some people think is fair? Someone is trying to get too much sugar for a dime.

What gets me is when you GO IN TO somewhere like McAllister's Deli, go up to the counter, order, pay for it and then either wait for your meal or go set down and they bring it to you. When they give you the ticket, it has a place for a tip right there. That is ridiculous! It's like tipping the bartender for pouring a stinking glass of brew for you while you are sitting at the bar. How much work is involved in tipping a bottle and pouring some liquid in a glass? Or why would anyone pay a tip up front, at the places like I mentioned where you stand in a line to order when you might get your food and never see that serving person come back to your table? I pay for performance.
I do tip some for delivery though, just to show I'm not totally insensitive.

I find they usually don't want a tip when I start digging through my banana hammock to find my change.
